Yeah I will lodge one.

Do we think it should have more configurability then just at the plist level?
For example,
I can see the status bar needing to change between different cards of an App...

Hmm... you should open a bug report on iphoneSetStatusBarStyle on two things:
 - the docs should note that translucent and opaque are deprecated in iOS 7
 - a new option "lightContent" should be added
 - add it as an option for the plist

Should take someone only a few minutes to fix. 

For the time being you could try editing the plist manually to set UIStatusBarStyle to UIStatusBarStyleLightContent

It's a very easy external too...

[[UIApplication sharedApplication] setStatusBarStyle:UIStatusBarStyleLightContent];
